King Baabu chronicles the debauched rule of General Basha Bash who takes power in a coup and exchanges his general’s uniform for a robe and crown re-christening himself King Baabu. The play is a naked satire on the use of power and jumped-up officialdom; a parody of Africa’s past and present dictators. The play is directed by Toyin Oshinnaike and features Toju Ejoh, Tessy Brown, Kevin Umweni, Abiodun Kassim, Seun Kentebe, Bola Akinde, Femi Durojaiye, Ahide Adum, Andrew Udo Adigwe, Ikechukwu Asonye, Ajibola Fashola, Emmanuel Nwaodu and Ikechukwu Asonye.
